The son of Venezuela's top human rights official has called on his father to prevent further deadly bloodshed tied to anti-government street clashes even as officials defied international criticism by withdrawing from the Organization of American States.In what's shaping up to be a battle of political kids, President Nicolas Maduro's son responded with a letter saying he regretted his friend's decision to seek "three minutes of fame" with a video being used as a "trophy of war" by the government's enemies.Maduro's government announced the decision to withdraw from the OAS after a brief but contentious meeting at the group's Washington headquarters in which representatives voted to convene a special meeting of the region's foreign ministers to evaluate Venezuela's crisis.OAS Secretary-General Luis Almagro earlier had urged regional governments to suspend Venezuela from the group over what he said were systematic abuses destroying the country's democracy.
